Well, I finally got to see this year's Steelers team on television last night. They won, but I'm not sure that they should have. The blew a bunch of opportunities and the offensive line continued to fail at protecting the quarterback. That doesn't bode well when sportswriters say they have the most difficult schedule of anyone this year.
Byron Leftwich looked good as a back-up QB and if he continues to play like he did last night, Charlie Batch may not have a job once his collarbone heals. The new runningback - Rashard Mendenhall - looked great when he could hold onto the ball. He fumbled twice, both times wen it seemed as if the Steelers were moving the ball well. Both times, the Vikings recovered.
And what is up with Roethlisberger's hair?
All in all, I'm looking forward to the season.
